What is Laparoscopy ?
The procedure of Laparoscopy makes use of a laparoscope for looking into the patient’s abdomen. The purpose of using a laparoscope is to magnify and light up the structures within the abdomen. A laparoscope has a light source that can be passed inside the abdomen by making a tiny incision into the skin. The symptoms of pelvic pain, pelvic region, abdominal pain and swelling of the abdomen can be found out by using a laparoscopy procedure. The Doctor can clearly see inside the patient’s abdomen by using laparoscopy. The few common conditions that can be perceived by laparoscopy:
I can’t imagine the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to alway search my destination.
When it’s dark enough, you can see the stars.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery also referred to as minimally invasive surgery describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments. During the surgical procedure, small incisions of up to half an inch are made and plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions. The camera and the instruments are then introduced through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient.
The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor. The surgeon is not able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes in laparoscopy surgery, since the surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure. Benefits of minimally invasive or laparoscopic procedures are:
Laparoscopic surgery is used to treat conditions including:
Laparoscopic Intestine Surgery Types
Laparoscopic intestinal surgery can be used to perform the following operations:
Proctosigmoidectomy - surgical removal of a diseased section of the rectum and sigmoid colon used to treat cancers and noncancerous growths or polyps, and complications of diverticulitis.
Right colectomy or ileocolectomy - during a right colectomy, the right side of the colon is removed. During an ileocolectomy, the last segment of the small intestine, which is attached to the right side of the colon, called the ileum, is also removed. This surgery is used to remove cancers, noncancerous growths or polyps, and inflammation from Crohn’s disease.
Total abdominal colectomy - surgical removal of the large intestine, which is used to treat ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, familial polyposis and possibly constipation.
Fecal diversion - surgical creation of either a temporary or permanent ileostomy (opening between the surface of the skin and the small intestine) or colostomy (opening between the surface of the skin and the colon). The surgery treats complex rectal and anal problems, including poor bowel control.
Abdominoperineal resection - Surgical removal of the anus, rectum, and sigmoid colon that is used to remove cancer in the lower rectum or in the anus, close to the sphincter muscles.
Rectopexy - A procedure in which stitches are used to secure the rectum in its proper position in cases of rectal prolapse.
Total proctocolectomy - this is the most extensive bowel operation performed and involves the removal of both the rectum and the colon. If the surgeon is able to leave the anus and it works properly, then sometimes an ileal pouch can be created so that you can go to the bathroom. An ileal pouch is a surgically created chamber made up of the lowest part of the small intestine (the ileum). However, sometimes, a permanent ileostomy (opening between the surface of the skin and the small intestine) is needed, particularly if the anus must be removed, is weak, or has been damaged.
